With everything in this area of Avernum completed, it's time to descend beneath Avernum... to start the dark journey.

Yanno now that I think of it why would so many people come through a passage of waterfalls that it would necessitate a gatehouse like this?

Sure, I think we can pay our respects.

Finally we make it through into the lands of the Vahnatai, and the city of Avit.  Time to find out what's going on here.

Onwards now into the town of Egli, one of the Vahnatai's centers of magical research.  Interesting place, this...

He should not need to do the three trials because he did three substitute actions on the way to Vahnatai lands.

I may not need to, but that doesn't mean I won't do them anyway.

That said, let's do them!  I'm sure they'll be easy!

Well two out of three of them were easy.  The Test of Battle?  The problem there is my characters are either focused on melee combat and do lots of damage there, or focused on ranged combat and powerful there but limited on amount of attacks.

Either way, this time we check out another town, then another Vahnatai resting facility.

Test of Battle works well with a mage with lots of potions.

Which one is the quickfire one? I think I usually have to do one, and I always chose that one. Send a mage in, haste her, and leg it.

That is the Test of Speed for sure...
You can always come back later to do the Test of Battle, you are doing it voluntarily not because you need to.  Other two tests are easy enough.
Test of Battle can be passed without hassles if you use wise tactics.
Stockpile wands, scrolls and potions.
Make sure only one opponent can attack you at any one time.
Bless, Haste and Shield yourself, if you can.
Use healing pools.
(You can flee at least some of the fights and still pass the test.)

Aye, I'll be taking care of the Test of Battle sometime in the future.  Eventually.

For now though, time to explain ourselves to the Vahnatai council.

I believe I did, yes, if you check the vids.

Either way, we've done everything in Vahnatai lands that I want to do (Or at least everything that was in the demo) so it's time to head back to Avernum!

Heading out into Avernum once more we stumble upon, of course, a cult.

Some of the level 3 spells are harder to find in A2 than they were in A1.
Spoiler
A2 is harder than A1 sometimes. You will have tough fights and tough puzzles, as you will learn the hard way...

Jeez, you'd think one of the most important farming cities in Avernum would be better protected than this...

That does explain why the undead are running around outside, sure, but this is still the city that provides food to most of Avernum, thus making it a critical place to hold, and at the very least the local guard should be able to do something about Chirtrach and Aranea INSIDE the city walls.  You'd think, anyway.  I'd expect more local issues in places like Blosk or Formello.

Either way it seems the last attempt to remove the curse didn't quite take, so let's see if we can do something to stop it ourselves...

some later game (pre-A6) it was told that cities guards aren't that well equipped.

With the area around Mertis cleared out, it's time to head into the Honeycomb to find what we can find.  Short episode this time while we explore.

Go to Patrick's Tower, there is some nice stuff there...
I think Jeff intends that you next explore the Central Avernum area, Fort Dranlon through to Silvar. You will soon see why.
Mage and Priest spells are sold at different prices by different people, as you will soon learn the hard way.

Don't worry.  Patrick's Tower will be soon, and Central Avernum is planned after the Great Cave.

For now though, onwards into the castle!
